Do you take to any of the shows nearby like Traverse City
 

Just a few little "good ole boy" shows around here we have been to. The kind where they get together and vote for the guy that is due to get a trophy versus the car.   My kids both live in Cadillac and want us to go up there in June to the back to the bricks show. That's a little far for Mr. Truck, but Stacy's friend Joe offered to trailer it up there if we would come. 50 miles in Northern Michigan in 1946 would have been a journey!!

Yes, you should come up to the Cadillac Show in June. It's a big show for the area. Let me know if you do.

Outta the barn for a breath of fresh air. Still not sure the electric fan is going to kick on. Using the gauge inside I ran it to 190 and it didn't come on.

Im afraid that the same guy that wired the car put the engine together.

We took the mustang to clare today for a 20 mile leisurely ride. It started rattling and knocking with a dead miss when we were  back to harrison about a half mile from home.  I guess its parked until this fall. To busy getting ready for the pigroast. I will do a compression test tomorrow. We never lost oil pressure.

One bonus about those old V8s is that they are pretty simple to rebuild. I could strip and rebuild my 70s vintage Holden (GM Aus) straight 6 in Dad's shed.

Modern quad cam Toyota with the variable valve stuff?  Good thing they are so reliable....

You can get a rebuilt short block for a sensible price, then you know it's all good inside.

Start simple, the coil on the chevy had a loose connector this week and the coil on the tractor was cracked yesterday.

Loose rocker arm.  Those don't  look like OEM to me.

No, I would say High-performance ones. Might have to pull the pushrod to see if It got damaged in some way.  Then check all the rockers. Do you have a  book for the motor?
I bet I -- we can get a book online for our motors.

Funny I use to work on all this stuff when I was in my teens and 20s. 45 years ago. Now I can't remember. Just have to relearn I guess. :D :D :P

Not exactly what I was thinking but almost. I was thinking I need to find away to afford to have someone do it for me now.:D I had Tammy start it and I adjusted that rocker, and quieted out all the tapping. I'll probably need to bring it up to temp and then adjust it before I put the tappet cover back on.  Hopefully I got it quick. It went from fine to a light tick to a pretty good tap in just a half mile.

Money is why the lift is going in. The money I spent on my two trucks this past spring to get a sticker on them would have paid for the concrete and lift.
We have salt as you do. And it eats iron. 
I think in the long run it will pay. Then if I have just a computer problem Or something I just can't do then I'll bring them to the dealership.
I plan to keep the trucks for a long time. There both 5-speed standard and they don't make them anymore.

Power wash and oil every year.
Well, I got to get my butt out there cut some wood to pay for all of this. :D :D :D ;)
Good luck my friend.

Yup, I think I went a quarter turn. I put it all back together and it sounds fine now, other than it has a smoke issue on the right side.   I'm sending it into the shop tomorrow to have it looked over by an old school race guy I know. I want to make sure the engine is viable before I continue to do anything further to it. I have some leaks and things that need attention and there is no sense wasting my time on this engine if it has any major issues.

Good idea, The smoke might be from a valve seal not doing its job. I wish you luck :)

Had dat same engine in a T-bird I once bought for $800. Smoked good especially after start up, or adding oil. Turned out ta be partially plugged oil galleries in the heads. I put in new valve guide seals at the same time. It never smoked again during the next 160,000 miles I put on it. Other than a water pump that's all I ever did to that engine. :)
